The Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) Management Team is excited to announce a new initiative – Club AORC – for the 2021 Championship.
Club AORC is aimed at new and upcoming riders to give them a taste of the national Championship competition, while also rewarding them under the Club AORC points system.
Club AORC riders will receive bonus points for participating in 7 rounds or more of the 12 round AORC in 2021.
If a rider starts 7 rounds or more, a 50-point bonus will be given towards the rider’s Club AORC points results in their relevant Championship class.
Any rider within 10% of the class winner at any sprint or enduro round or within 10% of the class winners fastest lap for a cross country round will not be eligible for Club AORC.
Motorcycling Australia Off-Road Events Manager, Matthew Falvo, said this was an exciting new initiative to further grow the AORC after record rider numbers in AORC this past year.
“We are always looking at new and innovative ways to provide off-road riders with an opportunity to race against the world’s best riders in the Australian Off-Road Championship,” Mr Falvo said.
“This new initiative is a great way for riders new to off-road national competition races to test their limits in our growing Championship, and still be rewarded for their efforts.
“Club AORC is about providing riders with a progression in to full-blown national competition against the world’s best riders in the AORC.
“The AORC is the breeding ground of the world’s best off-road riders and we want to ensure that we can provide new avenues for weekend enthusiasts, and part-time racers to make the transition to one of the world’s best off-road Championships.
More information is still to follow, including regulations and further exciting incentives for Club AORC.
